Santa Fe Passage (1955) as Set Decoration
Scout and wagon-train guide Kirby Randolph (John Payne) hates all Indians, particularly Kiowa Chief Satank (George Keymas), whose massacre of an entire wagon-train of settlers led by Kirby, has led to his ostracism and neither he nor his pal Sam Beekman (Slim Pickens) can get jobs. Aurelie St. Clair (Faith Domergue), who owns half of an ammunition shipment for sale in Santa Fe to Mexican insurrectionaries, protests when he partner Jess Griswold (Rod Cameron) hires Kirby and Sam as guides. When Kirby saves them all from a wild horse stampede instigated by Satank, she changes her mind and she and Kirby fall in love, although Kirby does not realize she is half-Indian. Jess, who is also in love with Aurelie and wanting to get rid of Kirby, sends his servant Chavez (Anthony Caruso) to Satank offering to deliver Kirby to the Chief in return for safe passage for the wagon train.

Wilson begins to realize that while his type of journalism does build circulation, it has also brought ruin and disgrace to some innocent victims. Lorelei and Pete are brought back by Wilson with his promise that "The Illustrated Press" will become a crusader against evil.

Lighthouse (1947) as Set Decoration
Looks like the film that might have inspired Hugo Hass to make one like it twice a year in the early fifties. Connie (June Lang) is all smitten with lighthouse keeper Sam Wells (Don Castle), but he brushes her off and she ups and marries his fellow-lighthouse keeper Hank Armitage(John Litel) out of spite. All three live together in the close confines of the lighthouse and jealously and recrimination rise nearly as high inside as the pounding surf and howling winds outside. It also begins to look like an Edgar G. Ulmer film, if it wasn't so semi-rational. Sam is pleased with the situation that appears to him to promise action with no responsibilities. But Connie, in addition to rebuffing Sam's unwanted passes, is actually falling in love with ol' Hank. Trouble is brewing.

One of the Kitten Club showgirls, Flo (Constance Worth) tells Chris that when Diane came to the club for an audition, she incurred the wrath of the heavy-drinking featured singer Marianne Mason (Claudia Drake) and club owner Steve Raymond (Paul Gulifoye) delegated her to the hostess ranks of girls whose job was to steer customers to the illegal gambling.
